Our Gang - Waldo Darwood Kaye played Waldo in the Our Gang shorts from 1937 to 1940. The bookish and officious Waldo was usually a minor character, although he also pursued the fair Darla. His first speaking part was in Hearts are Thumps (1937). His last was Waldo's Last Stand (1940). He had a few movie roles outside of the Our Gang series, including one alongside Lucille Ball. Following his acting days, Darwood became an ordained minister with the Seventh-Day Adventist church. He worked at various missions, including ones in Thailand. Sadly Darwood met a tragic end. On May 15, 2002, he was struck and killed by a hit-and-run driver while walking on a sidewalk near his home in Riverside, California. He was 72 years old.

I agree with Steve. Please keep them coming.

I remember Waldo but I don't remember him. He is one of those minor characters that added to the plot and cast.

How many children were actual Our Gang/Little Rascal members?

Establishing the exact number of characters in the Our Gang comedies might be impossible. Over the years there were numerous characters and extras who had no speaking parts. Excluding them, a reasonable guess of the number of Our Gang regulars would be 60 (from the beginning of the series in 1922 to its end in 1944).

Old Fart: See my earlier comment for the answer to your question.

Darwood Kaye looks like a young Harold Lloyd.

Indeed he does. I never noticed that before!
